e-Learning Communication Toolkit

Welcome to the revised eLearning Communications Toolkit.  This toolkit is aimed at individuals in local organisations responsible for implementing and promoting eLearning through the Electronic Staff Record (ESR).  We hope this resource provides you with everything you need to start communicating your eLearning activities effectively and to achieve the maximum impact for your work. 

Initially developed in consultation with the Strategic Health Authority eLearning leads and NHS Trusts to build a range of information and guidance to support you, the revised toolkit has been through a significant review by the OLM Special Interest Group to ensure it meets the requirements of the project as it has evolved. 

Although by no means exhaustive, this preliminary set of tools should enable you to start engaging with the relevant steps of a communication process.  There is no set procedure in promoting eLearning through ESR as it is extremely dependent upon the culture of your Trust or organisation. 

These are contained within:
